Chilly-Half Marathon 'Official' Joggling Record: 1:24:33

(Image courtesy of Michelle from The236.net blog – note how the fire hydrant and mailbox match my outfit)

Yes, that weird thing on my head there is a camera. I think I set a precedent for the first ever joggling race footage with a head-cam. The videographer told me the footage turned out well, so we'll see. I ended up joggling the Chilly Half-Marathon in Burlington, Ontario, on Sunday, in 1:24:33, which was 44 seconds slower than my best joggling half from Montreal a few years ago. I never claimed that one through Guinness World Records, though, because I didn't have the independent witnesses and video footage that they require to certify it. This time I'll have first-person video of the whole thing, plus witnesses, so if it all pans out, 1:24:33 will be the new official Guinness World Record for the fastest time to run a half-marathon while joggling three objects.

It was great to jump back into the ridiculous world of joggling, as I've been doing mostly "regular" running races lately. Some things I heard along the route:
  • "Show-off!" (the most popular among the 5K runners who were passing by in the opposite direction – and might I add that this is not a very motivating thing to hear when you're struggling along trying to race the thing while juggling, with a camera on your head, and in fact, why don't you just punch me in the stomach while you're at it)
  • "You're my hero!" (now that's more like it)
  • "Don't drop a ball!" (thanks, thanks a lot)
  • "I heard yoo speak at the pasta dinner last night, and you're right, I don't want to get beaten by a joggler!" (my favourite line of the day, by a guy running past me, referencing a line from my dinner talk about how other runners hate getting passed by me when I'm joggling)
Conditions overall were pretty good for the race. My hands were freezing off in the first 2K and I dropped a couple of times because my fingers were numb. Winds were gusting for the last 7K or so and my lightweight "racing" beanbags got blown out of reach a bunch of times. I had another seven or eight drops on the way back, which really screwed up my rhythm and focus. The head-cam was actually heavier than I expected, but I don't think it slowed me down too much. I'll post the highlights (if there are any) on YouTube when I get the footage.

LOL! That's my picture of you! Thanks for crediting my photo. Appreciate it!
And, thanks for putting a smile on our faces Sunday morning. We got a kick out of watching you run and juggle at the same time. Nicely done!

Thanks Michelle. I was going to ask you if you minded that I stole your photo. It's a cool shot, especially with the fire hydrant colours matching my shoes.

we saw you running and thought you were awesome! i cannot even begin to imagine the dexterity it must take to be able to master the juggling of three objects, then throw in the challenge of running 21k, and ... and chew gum at the same time - all while wearing a camera on your head!!! phenomenal.

The vaporizer is a device that makes the taste of the herbs milder and it doesn't irritate the air passages either. Pharmacies and department stores stock the shelves with various sizes of humidifiers. We would notice the cracking wallpaper, the drying wood furniture, our dry and itchy eyes and skin, our dry mucous membranes and the discomfort our pets endure.

The semen drooling out will reduce the male's testosterone level though so he will be put in a pocket pussy review. But even then I think that maybe all that stuff was gone and instead I had this vagina and hardly any hair down there and be the hit of a party.

No longer, though: the sexcam Alt and Shift keys are now
